its turkey day!

remember last Spring? yeah, THIS guy was eating birdseed
like no tomorrow
getting fattened up
but do you think he stuck around for 

hee hee   NOPE!   off he went into the wild blue yonder
looking for cute little turkey chicks
to get cozy with.........
he was a beauty though........
saved by the bell for sure!
Hope you are all enjoying your Thanksgiving turkey
and all the fixings......
we are having turkey,
stuffing, roasted brussel sprouts with onion and garlic,
squash, turnips and carrots, green beans 
then some sugar free apple or pumpkin pie

and hopefully while YOU are reading this,

Dunkin is pooped. he helped MOM peel the veggies and
get things ready

while Phoebe and Daddy rolled over and snoozed some more

Mom is done with the prep and is dreaming
of sugarplums, er um
nope quilts to make
this one keeps haunting me.........

I think I have enough of these
in all scraps
and I think something like blue stars
will tie them together?

and then there are the rainbow ones......
Do I try and make the stars flow from one
color to the other?
so many ideas in this head

and of course I had to write to Santa 
to see if Mrs Claus can whip one of these up for ME
(yeah I KNOW she will.....wink***)
or else I will get a note like last year saying
Dear Dawn. make one yourself as Mrs Claus and I
are very busy making toys for GOOD little girls and boys

hmmmmmm Did Santa Dis me?? was he saying I was not GOOD????

anywho...........this one is on the brain too.........

then reality struck!  yeah how many days to go????
and I have some of these to finish
and some shopping to do

and a purse to make for me

and matching accessories
(hey a girl has to do what she has to do right?)

and some of these are on my list...........

and what can I do with these? any ideas????
have yellow green and pink I think.......

and I never even started trying to make a pattern yet for these.

just shoot me now and get it over with!
I need a 72 hour day 
and some energizer bunnies to help me
to get it all done........

feeling overwhelmed but happy this holiday season.
